Post-Thanksgiving ‘80s Double Feature:

PRETTY IN PINK and THE BREAKFAST CLUB
Sponsored by Slice of Humboldt Pie

Black Friday, November 24, 2017
Doors 5:00 PM
Showtime 6:00 PM (Pretty) & 8:15 (Breakfast)

It was a simpler time, and Molly Ringwald was our queen.

For one night only, the '80s are back! Break out your skinny ties, your legwarmers, parachute pants, Members Only jackets, and lots and lots of hair product--the Eureka Theater and Slice of Humboldt Pie are proud to present a Black Friday double feature of two classics from the Ringvaldian oeuvre--PRETTY IN PINK and THE BREAKFAST CLUB!

It's the Friday after Thanksgiving--show up early (doors open at 5:00) and bop to some bitchin' '80s tunes until showtime (movies start at 6:00). Slice of Humboldt Pie will be offering mini pumpkin and (of course) cherry pies to keep the post-Thanksgiving feast going.

Prizes, you ask? Hell, yes! Come as your favorite character from either movie OR the '80s in general, and be eligible to win some fabulous booty (oh just stop, you know what we mean). Were you too wasted to remember your actual prom? Photo ops available to help you fill in the blanks.

Tickets are a budget-friendly $8.00 for both movies. Just do it--if not for yourself, then for the brain... and the athlete... the basket case... the princess... and the criminal inside all of us.

Pretty in Pink: 1986 | Rated PG-13 | 96 min.

The Breakfast Club: 1985 | Rated R | 97 min.

Dell'Arte International's 37th Annual Holiday Touring Show

The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen

December 2, 2017 | 7:30 PM

The Eureka Theater is proud to host the Dell'Arte holiday touring show once again! The Dell’Arte Company’s annual holiday show tour, now in its 37th year, ushers in the festive season with an adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Snow Queen, the timeless tale of a child’s spirit triumphing over impending darkness. Keeping with tradition, admission for this performance is free thanks to the generous support of local schools, Wildberries Marketplace, Stephany Joy of Re/Max Humboldt Realty, Pierson Building Center, Coast Central Credit Union and Ramone’s Bakery and Cafe. The audience is asked to contribute non-perishable food items, which the cast collects and donates to local food banks in collaboration with local non-profit, Food for People.

When a magical mirror shatters and two pieces fall into the heart and eye of young Kai, his friend Gerda must embark on a journey of a lifetime to set things right and eventually embrace the power within her. The Snow Queen is an enthralling holiday spectacle for the whole family and features an assortment of magical characters, which include a trio of bumbling trolls, a talking tree and a flying reindeer. 

The Dell’Arte Company’s adaptation of The Snow Queen is directed by Dell’Arte’s Producing Artistic Director Michael Fields and is a bold re-telling of the classic holiday tale that comprises of original music and robust physical storytelling created and performed by this year’s international cast. Featured are: Matilda Lindström from Finland, Gaia Mencagli from Denmark and Gaby Haught, Eric Jones, Natashia Marshall, Chase Perkins, Fay Steddum and Jacob Timmons from the US.

Free Tickets will be available at Pierson’s Building Center, Wildberries Marketplace, and Coast Central Credit Union in McKinleyville. More information can be found at dellarte.com, or phone Dell’Arte at (707) 668-5663.

Annex '39 Antiques presents 
IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE
Thursday, December 21, 2017
Doors 6:30 PM | Movie showtime 7:00 PM

If you’ve never seen this movie, forget what you’ve heard about it. If you’ve only seen it on the small screen, either on broadcast TV with commercial interruptions or on lousy Public Domain home video, erase that experience from your mind. The beauty, the humor, and the power of this classic can only be appreciated as it was originally intended—on the big screen, sitting side-by-side with friends, family, neighbors, and strangers alike. Join us at the Eureka Theater for this special holiday screening, and help us celebrate being a part of this, well, wonderful community.

“What is remarkable about It’s a Wonderful Life is how well it holds up over the years; it’s one of those ageless movies, like Casablanca or The Third Man, that improves with age. Some movies, even good ones, should only be seen once. When we know how they turn out, they’ve surrendered their mystery and appeal. Other movies can be viewed an indefinite number of times. Like great music, they improve with familiarity. It’s a Wonderful Life falls in the second category.” – Roger Ebert

1946 | 130 min. | Admission $5.00
